March Layouts

Hi everyone! I managed to get 3 layouts done last weekend.

Happy: A selfie of me with my scrappy friends last summer. I used Amy Tangerine and Jen Hadfield papers; a Basic Grey brad; Prima flowers; Kaisercraft title and word art stickers; and Doodlebug twine. The tags were made from a template using up some scraps.

I used the following sketch at ACOT:

Let’s Taco ‘Bout It: I used Bazzill cardstock; Doodlebug pattern papers, washi tape and enamel shapes; Jolee’s tacos/hot sauce packets; and Moxxie alphas. That avacado sticker? Found at H-E-B in the party section during Cinco de Mayo!

Journaling: Six months after only able to go through the drive-thru of our fave Mexican Restaurant, they were finally open for dine-in. The food was better than ever. The salsa was spicy; and the chips were crispy. We were in HEAVEN! Sept 25, 2020

Be a Dreamer – Follow Rainbows: Once I had taken photos of Penny wearing her PJs, I’ve started to “collect” anything scrappy in the rainbows and unicorns dept. LOL. This layout features her wearing them in mid-December last year. The papers/stickers are from a kit called “Chasing Rainbows” I found at Hobby Lobby (The Paper Studio brand). The washi tape is from Recollections.

I used the following sketch:

How much is that doggie in the window?

Hello everyone!

My March Pet Challenge at A Cherry On Top is for you to use a song that has an animal in the title. There are quite a few out there. Some examples are: “Hound Dog”; “Eye of the Tiger”; “Cat Scratch Fever”; “Who let the dogs out?”, just to name a few. You could even use the catchy yet quite annoying song that most toddlers like – “Baby Shark”. LOL. Normally this is just a PET challenge, but because there’s alot more songs for people to choose from, I chose to allow all animals. If you have zoo pics to scrap, this might be the challenge for you!

I chose to use “How much is that doggie in the window?” for my title to go with this photo I took of Miss Penny while I was coming home from my morning walk. You’ll have to zoom in to find her!

Journaling: As I was coming home from my walk one morning, I looked up to see Miss Penny sitting by the window, looking out. I thought it was cute and immediately stopped to take her picture. I knew exactly how I would scrap this and which title I’d use.

I used Echo Park pattern papers and stickers; a Pebbles journal spot; Doodlebug washi tape and MME alphas.

Come out to A Cherry On Top and check out my challenge and many others!

Sisterly Love

Hello everyone! Today I’d like to share with you my layout for the February Pet Challenge over at A Cherry On Top I’m hosting.

Β Everywhere you go, you see pink, red, white, black, hearts and LOVE all over the place in February. And we all LOVE our furbabies! This month’s challenge is full of choices. Your choices are:

Pink OR Red
Hearts OR Doily
“Love” or “xoxo” in your title or a quote or your journaling.

In my example, I chose PINK, DOILY and “LOVE” in my title. The photo is of Jasmine and Shelby snuggling with each other. I adore that photo so much.

I used American Crafts bow; Momenta doily; Freckled Fawn and MME enamel dots; Asuka Studio “love” chipboard piece; KaiserCraft phrases (puppy dog kisses, do small things with great love, and happy little moment); and MME ephemera, chipboard, alphas, stickers and pattern paper.

TFL and hope you can join me at A Cherry On Top! πŸ™‚

More Doggie Layouts

Hello everyone! Sunday I managed to get 5 pages done. 2 2-page layouts, and 1 single.

All You Need Is Love and a Dog: My sweet Penny Lane hanging out with her daddy. She’s so happy! πŸ™‚

I used Jillibean Soup (brown pattern paper, “pet me!” sticker); Adorn It (orange pattern paper); Momenta (oval shaped sticker); KaiserCraft (quote, title, “I’m a dog person sticker”) and washi tape from my stash.

Its based on the Becky Fleck Sketch #208 at A Cherry On Top:

Happy Together: The SD card failed in my phone and I couldn’t save my pictures. We tried everything but it was corrupt. Luckily I already back up to my Google Drive! So I ordered another one and once it was delivered I put it in my phone. The first pictures I took were of my furbabies and Rob. November 23, 2020

I used Simple Stories “So Happy Together” and Love My Tapes washi tape.

Its based on the November 2020 Sketch that was posted as a “rewind” challenge on the Double Page Challenge this month.

Awesome: Shelby and Jasmine turned 3 years old on Feb 10, 2020. My oh my have they gotten so big and pretty. I made peanut butter carob pup cakes and bought cotton candy ice cream. And of course, they got spoiled with new toys and treats.

I used Simple Stories “Oh Happy Day” and Bazzill cardstock in Pink Fairy.

This is also based on a sketch from the Double Page Challenge. This time, I used the March 2020 sketch:

A couple of weekday layouts

Hello everyone! I normally don’t scrap during the week since work takes a lot of my time, but with yesterday a holiday, I was able to work all morning/afternoon and perform an upgrade in the later afternoon. Once complete, I literally ran to my scrap room. LOL.

I had started this two pager on Sunday and stopped to make dinner. It just needed a few bits and pieces. Really love how it came out too.

Shelby Approves the New Scrappy Bench: I got a new bench for the scrap room and Shelby immediately had to check it out. She approved!

Since the bench is a beige color and so is Shelby, I wanted to use BRIGHT happy colors. I used Bo Bunny “#ForeverYoung” collection. I just bought some super cute doggie stickers from Sticko that had some similar bright colors.

I also did the ACOT Becky Fleck sketch for the week. I used photos from a few years ago. Mr. Jeffrey going for a quick ride with his daddy. I used a mix of Basic Grey.

Jasmine and Shelby Layouts

Hello everyone! I’d like to share with you two layouts I did featuring my girls, Jasmine and Shelby.

Layout: Oh, Hello. Just look at that face! LOL.

I used Echo Park papers and ephemera, alphas and stickers from KaiserCraft, Eyelet Outlet washi tape, and large Thickers.

Layout: Creepy. This one is of Shelby. As I sat down at my desk to begin my work day, I noticed Shelby peeking behind the keyboard tray. Kind of creepy looking right?

I used CTMH glittered tape, American Craft alphas and PhotoPlay papers and ephemera. I used stickles to color in the word “wicked” on the cut apart card.
